And yet, despite her lifelong interest and amazing contributions to Yiddish language and literature, her prime forte is matchmaking!

Chaya Mushka: The Rebbetzin

When asked about the extent of the Rebbetzin's greatness, the Rebbe’s thoughtful, genuine response was: Only Hashem knows.

Jeane Kirkpatrick

“I think the Holocaust is possible again. I didn’t think so before I came to the United Nations, but I think so now.” “Diplomacy regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict at the U.N. has nothing to do with peace, but is quite simply a continuation of war against Israel by other means.”

Shula Cohen: Amazing Jewish Heroine

Five weeks later, an agent of the Haganah’s secret service contacted her, attempting to enlist her in its espionage unit.

“Daughter Of Zion” – Our Historic Right

The Prophet Yeshayahu’s messages of Geula/ Redemption are apt answers to our present-day prayers. They are tailor made for our times. He exhorts the people of Israel to abandon their self-image as aniya soara -- a poor tempest-tossed woman ( 54:11) -- and rise as bat Tziyon -- the daughter of Zion, a nation with a sense of pride and dignity.

Grace Aguilar: The Spirit of Judaism

Was it the impact of her family history that made this young woman dedicate her life to defending Judaism and extolling the values of its teachings?

Holocaust Heroines: Hilda Pistiner

When I first saw Hilda Pistiner I believed she was a German tourist. Later, when I met her personally and found out she was an Israeli born in Bukovina, I labored under a second mistaken assumption: I believed she had been a pioneer in pre-State Israel, her fresh youthful blond looks untouched by the Holocaust. How wrong have I been!

Yonat Daskal, Tal Shahar, Noam Dan and Tamar Bar-Ilan: Four Women Saving Jewish...

Anne Bloch: The Passion For Living

The passionate artist was bursting with joy as they stepped ashore in Ashkelon to build their family’s future in her own birthplace, now the brand new Jewish State.

Dafna Meir: The Ultimate Jewish Mother

The thirty-eight year old mother of six, two of whom were adopted, no longer “enjoyed life,” as reported by her grief-stricken neighbors.

Sarah Aaronson: The Heroine of NILI

Nearly eighty-five years have passed since Sarah Aaronson shot herself in the head, putting an end to the torture her Turkish interrogators inflicted upon her for refusing to disclose information about her associates in the NILI, an anti-Turkish spying organization that supplied the British with intelligence.

Asenath Barzani: Remarkable Hebrew Scholar

I never left the entrance to my house or went outside; I was like a princess of Israel ...

Miriam, The Sister of Aharon

I have always been overwhelmed by the sense of responsibility the message of Har Sinai has placed upon women. The Midrash teaches that the Almighty asked Israel: “What can you give as an assurance that you will keep my covenant?”

Princess Alice: Holocaust Heroine

At times, the Gestapo became suspicious of the royal princess and brought her in for questioning.

March Of Life: Dorothee Haas

Listening to her presentation on the TV Knesset Channel, I was amazed at her approach. Where did she come from? What part of Israel produced this extraordinary woman?

Tally Eitan: The ‘Cyber-Queen of Israel’

Who is this wonder woman? Tally Makovsky Eitan is a scion of a family that has lived in Jerusalem for eleven generations!

Dr. Kira Radinsky: ‘Exceptional Innovator’

“This is a great honor for me to be nominated to the list of ‘young innovators’ of MIT. I hope that it will encourage more Israeli researchers and scholars to study this field, to facilitate the building of an empirical superpower in Israel,” Dr. Kira Radinsky said in response to news of her selection for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology 2013 list of 35 young innovators, her lovely face radiating delight.
